00612 - Fruit Of The Spirit : Joy

As a fruit of the Spirit, joy is a profound, enduring happiness rooted in faith. Galatians 5:22-23 states, "But the Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control." This passage highlights joy as an integral outcome of living in harmony with the Holy Spirit.

Unlike fleeting pleasures, joy is enduring, not dependent on external conditions but on the steadfastness of God's presence and promises. It's a joy that persists in trials, not because of the situation but due to the unshakeable assurance of God's love and sovereignty. 

This joy is contagious, serving as a light to others. A joyful spirit stands out in a world often shrouded in negativity and despair, drawing others to its source. By nurturing joy in your life, you reflect the hope and peace found in Christ, offering a glimpse of the love of God to those around you.


A joyful heart will brighten up everyone’s day.


Lord, help me to pursue joy in my life. Amen.

Action Point

If you feel down or miserable, challenge yourself to focus on joy for one day.
